Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas get married in surprise quickie wedding in Las Vegas after Billboard Music Awards
The Jonas Brothers had performed at the Billboard Music Awards, after which it seems like Joe and his fiance Sophie decided to hit a chapel and exchange vows.
Where are the black-eyed, broken-elbowed groomsmen we were promised, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas?
When Joe said he is not going to have 18 different ceremonies to celebrate his union with the 'Game of Thrones' star unlike his brother Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, we did not think they would do a quickie wedding. It turns out, after giving a stellar performance at the Billboard Awards 2019, Joe and Sophie hit up a chapel in Las Vegas along with close family and friends to quickly exchange heartfelt vows and get hitched.
The news of the wedding was broken by Diplo, who shared a photo of Sophie in a white dress along with the caption, "Gonna hit up this wedding real quick." He then went on to share a bunch of other photos and videos from the wedding, which showed Sophie in a veil and a blinking bouquet, even as country singer Dan + Shay played their hit 'Speechless.' Another story that he shared shows the duo exchanging their vows, and a man who seems to be an Elvis Presley impersonator officiated the wedding.
The couple has been seeing each other since November 2016 and announced their engagement in October 2017. Although they had gotten engaged long before Nick and Priyanka, they have been waiting for the right moment to tie the knot. They had told in various interviews that they would have a summer wedding, unlike Joe's older brother Kevin whose December wedding was marred by a blizzard. Joe and Sophie were also clear on not wanting an elaborate wedding like Nick and Priyanka.
Well, they are now officially husband and wife after obtaining a marriage license on Wednesday, May 1, and they did it in their unique way - what we did miss, however, was a photo of Sophie's BFF and on-screen sister Maisie Williams in a bridesmaid dress.
Just hours before their wedding, the Jonas sisters-in-law aka Danielle, Priyanka, and Sophie, were seen singing along to their husbands' song 'Sucker' as they performed it at the MGM Grand Arena in Sin City. They were seen rocking out together, and it seems like they did not want the celebrations to end there, and decided to add marriage to the fun activities of the night.
